I can't say enough good things about Melanie at Last Petal! I gave her a handful of Pinterest pictures and my color scheme (navy and green...admittedly difficult for floral) and asked her to run with it. What she presented was truly INCREDIBLE. I couldn't take my eyes away from the bouquets and boutonnieres when they were delivered. They looked straight out of the pages of a bridal magazine! The centerpieces were stunning and still looked fresh for several days after we brought them home. The best part of all of it? I got more than I expected at a fraction of the price I would have paid with any other florist! Initially when I e-mailed Melanie I explained to her my budget constraints and she said it would be no problem; she remained budget conscious throughout the design process (far different from another florist I had met, who came in with a proposal that was 3.5x my budget!!). If you are looking for a florist with a true vision for floral design at a great price, you've found it at Last Petal!

I drove from Houston to Austin to meet with Melanie. When I told her our flower budget she said "that's not a very big budget to spend on flowers."
She snubbed me and my daughter with that statement. We chose another Austin florist who was AMAZING and never questioned our budget. Ever.
Make sure you have plenty of money if you use this vendor. I'm sure her flowers are beautiful.

I would highly recommend Melanie with Last Petal! She was fabulous to work with from start to finish. At our initial meeting we went through my pinterest board to get a good idea of the flowers that I was interested in. From there she took my ideas and ran with it! She created a fabulous design and flower selection given the 25 pictures I had shown her. She worked with me through all the details... wanting flowers in the back window of our car, reducing table counts, adding wreaths, etc. We set a budget and she worked within our budget while still giving us the flowers we wanted. She was very honest about what was too much and never tried to upsell. Multiple times during the reception I got compliments about how great the flowers looked. Melanie was truly amazing to work with in all ways and I hope she will do my little sisters wedding some day!

Last Petal was amazing! Right from the start they were able to interpret my jumbled thoughts and write a cohesive and comprehensive proposal that was so elegantly written it made me cry! Everything described was just as I had envisioned, even though I was not very good at describing it myself! I had bouquets, flowers at the church, and flowers are the reception - each blew me away! I hate those bouquets that look like a huge ball, so I asked for my bouquet and the bridesmaid's bouquets to look like they had just been picked out of the field - romantic - and they nailed it! The flowers at the church brought the over 100 year old structure to life and made it picturesque! They transformed the courtyard of the Allan house into a romantic, magical gathering fit for a princess! They lit the trees with candlelight for a romantic glow. I was even told that the peonies that I loved so much were flown in from overseas because the ones from the US were tiny and colorless.

Last Petal listened to my every need and desire and came through on budget! I can't recommend them enough! Thank you!!!

You must hire Melanie and her team! They not only made the most perfect bouquets that were beyond what I had imagined, but they helped with design and decor! The added touches of flowers and other antique pieces that they had were brilliant!! Also, when it was raining on all her hard work, she worked even harder to flip everything to inside within an hour and STILL everything was amazing.
You can't go wrong with Last Petal!

I would recommend Last Petal to anyone looking for beautiful floral arrangements in the Austin Area. Melanie is so great at what she does and you could trust any event to her. I had one conversation with her and she completely understood my vision and "vibe" for my wedding. All of the arrangements she created were absolutely perfect and totally inline with what I had imagined. I was absolutely in love with her work. LAST PETAL IS GREAT!!!

Melanie's work blew me away completely. I have never seen flower arrangements more beautiful than the ones she created for our wedding. We had a beautiful mossed chuppah and gorgeous spring blooms. I told her my vision and she brought it to life better than I could have imagined. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the flowers were - one of my friends even has my bouquet as her screen saver. Thanks for everything, Melanie!

I never thought I was a bride that cared about flowers but my bouquet was absolutely amazing. Melanie designed bouquets for me and my bridesmaids and then corsages and boutonnieres for the groomsmen and parents. She was so easy to work with, responded to all my emails quickly, and had a quote ready just a few hours after I initially emailed her. She worked within my budget but still gave me high quality, beautiful flowers that far exceeded my expectations. I was so impressed and highly recommend Last Petal!

I'm going to have to admit it - I was an absolute bridezilla when it came to the flowers at my wedding. That was definitely not my intention, and I apologize tremendously to Melanie. I tried to do some DIY projects that didn't work out (painted mason jars blue since vintage mason jars are so pricey, tied ribbon around mason jars to hang on the backs of the ceremony chairs) and changed my mind a million times. Throughout this entire process, Melanie was so patient, kind, and flexible. She always reassured me that I was not being difficult, but I knew deep down, I was.

I think Melanie was the last florist I interviewed. I interviewed about 10 of them and decided to go with Last Petal for a number of reasons:

1. Melanie has a degree in horticulture, which means she knows her stuff.
2. I tend to judge companies based on their website, and her website was probably the best and easiest to navigate out of all the florists I looked at. I loved being able to look at flowers from past weddings she's done.
3. An acquaintance (Andrea S.) used Last Petal for her wedding and gave a 5-star review.
4. Melanie was mindful of my budget and quoted me the best price of all the florists I met with.
5. She was the only florist who asked me how big of a bridal bouquet I wanted and provided approximate dimensions.

I never actually met Melanie. We've only communicated over the phone and via e-mail. I sent her my Pinterest board, and she was able to take my jumble of pins and pull off the exact look I wanted but didn't know how to convey. My mom loved the flowers so much she took them ALL home: centerpieces, chair flowers from the ceremony, bridesmaids bouquets. (An unknown guest also took one of the centerpieces, vase and all. I guess they really liked it too?)

For being such a pain in the rear end, I don't deserve the flowers for how gorgeous they were. They far exceeded my expectations. (See the rest of my review on Yelp due to a character limit here.)

Although I never actually met Melanie, she did a wonderful job on my wedding flowers. They were right within the specifications and requests that we discussed and uniquely beautiful! I got so many compliments on the flowers and how the combination of flowers were so pretty.

Honestly, I feel like a lot of ppl can arrange flowers or put a bunch of flowers in a vase. So, again, I will just stress that I feel like Melanie definitely has an eye for floral design and I was very happy with how the flowers turned out.

The only complaint I would have is that it is a little bit hard to get a hold of Melanie, as I've seen a few other reviewers mention. But, she does a great job and is reliable, so I really can't hold it against her. She seems to get really focused and caught up in whatever wedding is coming up, so I'm guessing she just spends more time actually arranging flowers vs business administrative things.

So, bottom line: Last Petal does gorgeous work. You might not get a lot of communication from Melanie, but don't worry, your flowers will turn out great!

Throughout the whole process, she was very patient, easy to communicate with through email, and had many good ideas and suggestions. Melanie was also very conscious of working with our budget! I brought her some pictures of what I wanted and she made suggestions on how to get the same feel without having to use as many flowers. Overall, she was great to work with and produced great floral work!

When I was choosing florists, I was looking for someone who could really get and bring to life my vision. I don't know anything about flowers and am not too creatively inclined, but there was a definite color scheme and vibe I was aiming for. What lead me to pick Melanie was the frequency that brides mentioned in their reviews how she really got their vision and that she was the florist for the wedding that I thought closest matched the rustic elegance I was going for.

I couldn't have been happier on the day of the wedding when I saw the flowers, but in particular the whole set of flowers and decorations on the tables in the reception. She had provided some small candle holders and wood discs on which she placed beautiful succulents. It had been a stressful day (made more so by unexpected sunshowers during our outdoor ceremony . . . ), but seeing the beauty of everything that Melanie did made me really happy. She also provided the decorations for the dessert table (wooden wine boxes and small stands) and it was soooo gorgeous. Some of the other florists I looked at heard me say "rustic elegant" and immediately wrote proposals with a cookie cutter style (with a vintage flair that I wasn't going for that seems to be so popular in the Austin area right now). I felt like Melanie really heard me and wanted to provide something unique.

Melanie was really easy to work. She was super professional and the set-up was so smooth. I definitely recommend her!! :)

Last Petal was the final florist I interviewed while planning our wedding, and I felt instantly comfortable with Melanie. Right off the bat, I felt like she understood the look we were trying to achieve. We went through several revisions of the bid and Melanie was extremely patient and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. I had a lot of my own items that I wanted to include in the décor, and Melanie was so wonderful about working them in. On the day of our wedding, my bridesmaids and I peeked our heads out to see how the flowers and décor were coming along, and my bridesmaids literally gasped at how beautiful everything was. The centerpieces came out better than I ever imagined. Melanie really paid attention to every detail! The mood of the décor was exactly on point with what I had wanted. I feel that Melanie and her team at Last Petal really paid attention to my ideas, and went above and beyond to make sure the outcome was perfect. I truly cannot say enough good things about Last Petal. The Last Petal team is extremely talented and I am beyond thrilled with the way the centerpieces and décor turned out. I would very highly recommend Last Petal for any event!! Thank you so much, Last Petal, for making my wedding so incredible!!

Melanie Tipton is extremely talented and took my "Anthropologie, not too vintage, not too overdone, but not too sparse" idea and created the most beautiful centerpieces. I showed her one picture of a bouquet and she took it and ran with it. I met with her several times and she always was very considerate of my budget and my vision. I felt like she really listened to me and didn’t try to fit me in a box (like other florists did).

We used The Last Petal Floral Studio for our December 2011 wedding. After consulting with another florist who we ultimately decided not to use, working with Melanie was a breath of fresh air.

She knew exactly the vision we wanted and her work was GORGEOUS. So, so gorgeous. I asked for vintage, romantic and rustic, and supplied her with milk glass vases and antique brown bottles, and I can only describe what she did with them as little waterfalls of beauty! On top of that, she helped me to tweak things so that all of it fit into our budget.

We used The Last Petal Floral Studio for our December 2011 wedding. After consulting with another florist who we ultimately decided not to use, working with Melanie was a breath of fresh air.

She knew exactly the vision we wanted and her work was GORGEOUS. So, so gorgeous. I asked for vintage, romantic and rustic, and supplied her with milk glass vases and antique brown bottles, and I can only describe what she did with them as little waterfalls of beauty! On top of that, she helped me to tweak things so that all of it fit into our budget.

I'm so grateful that The Last Petal did such a wonderful job with our floral design! Read less

Last Petal did a beautiful job. My bouquet was my favorite thing they made. It was absolutely beautiful. They included so many little touches here and there to make the day special. The corsages were on pretty pearl bracelets, she provided a bouquet for me to throw, and Melanie was so easy to work with. I don't know a lot about flowers, so her expertise definitely came in handy when choosing flowers of the right color and time of the year.

Melanie did my wedding and everything that she touched was AMAZING!! The bouquets were BIG and beautiful. The Chuppah was gorgeous. The tablescapes, both tall and short were so perfect. Everything she did was exactly as we had wanted. She realized our vision and fulfilled it completely. She was a pleasure to work with, very understanding, and also very respectful of the $$'s we planned to spend. She is a true gem!! Thank you Melanie for helping to make my wedding perfect.

Melanie was fantastic to work with, I would pick her every time if I were to do this whole thing over again! One of my favorite parts of my wedding day was looking at my bouquet for the first time - she did such an amazing job at executing what I wanted, it could not have been more perfect. She worked with my budget so well, and everything was beautiful, even better than I had imagined. Seriously, I wish I could post a picture of my bouquet here to brag. OMG it was so breathtaking! The centerpieces, corsages and boutonnieres were all beautiful. They also hung some candles in our venue and did a great job with that as well.

I only have two small complaints: we had issues getting the containers for our centerpieces to her, I wish we had planned it out earlier. The day before the wedding is a little crazy, it's hard to fit things in last minute (or be flexible on my end). But she made sure it worked out, so it wasn't a real issue. I also really appreciated that she suggested hydrangeas as a cost effective option for the bridesmaid's bouquets, I just really wish I knew they would wilt so fast so we could have put them back in water sooner; they made it through the ceremony but started looking bad during pictures.

In the end though, I still love that we went with Last Petal, I wouldn't have gone elsewhere.

Last Petal serves the Austin area and did a beautiful job on our wedding flowers. We had a tight budget and she came up with creative, interesting designs with an artistic eye, more than we expected. She was well organized and provided a great bid document for us to make our selections. She showed up when promised & everything was picture perfect, elegant and fun. A friend just used Last Petal & also had a great experience with an entirely different look.

I should have written this review a while back, but I feel guilty hurting someone else's business.

Let me start off by saying Melanie is really nice and was accommodating when I wanted to meet for a final meeting right before the wedding to make sure we were on the same page. I like her as a person; however, my floral was nothing like how I had imagined for my wedding. It's confusing reading the reviews and seeing that somehow she got everyone else's vision...but not mine.

I asked for specific colors...peach (or a peachy pink), pale blue and mint green. However the majority of my flower's colors were yellow and orange...my least favorite colors. I can see how someone can think they can replace peach with orange...HOWEVER, I specifically said to use light pink if it was too hard to find peach flowers.

I provided specific photos for the bridesmaid bouquets and my bridal bouquet. Everything was discussed in great detail, and from what I could tell, Melanie understood my vision. (Especially since I provided photos of what I wanted).

I couldn't have been more wrong. It was pretty sad to walk down the stairs on my wedding day and see the bouquets sitting on the coffee table. I had specifically asked for CHAMOMILE daisies...it was a specific vision with a specific photo. I had told Melanie that if she couldn't get the chamomile daisies, to just use baby's breath alone for the bouquets. Instead...the bouquets had ugly dead looking pompom daisies (which I hate) and were wimpy little bouquets. This is the photo I gave Melanie: http://pinterest.com/pin/259519997247656149/ .... These are the bouquets I got: http://pinterest.com/pin/259519997247656156/

On to my bridal bouquet which I was the most upset about. This is the photo I gave Melanie: http://pinterest.com/pin/259519997247656203/
This is what I got: http://pinterest.com/pin/259519997247656214/

To rub the salt in my wound a little more...I see this sweet little number on Last Petal's blog just 3 days after my wedding: http://www.lastpetal.com/2011/04/05/whimsical-vintage-bridal-portrait-bouquet/ ...Oh hey! That's exactly the kind of bridal bouquet I wanted!

I also asked for full baby's breath on the end of the aisle's but instead got little wimpy ones. I thought about doing these myself...but Melanie convinced me that she could do them no problem.

The swag on the gazebo looked dead...along with many of the other arrangements. The boutonnieres were also done with the wrong flowers. I asked for no roses (except garden roses...which look similar to peonies), but she incorporated a lot of roses into the swag and arrangements.

The floral was the only thing I was disappointed in. My wedding was still beautiful, and the flowers luckily did not destroy the rest of my vision. Last Petal is the only one of my vendors I would not recommend to a friend...or a client (I am a Wedding Planner now).

Last Petal did a brilliant job! Melanie was so helpful and accommodating! She was able to design a concept that was true to my vision and creative while still respecting our budget! I don't know much about flowers but knew I wanted to use hydrangeas as my main flower, she was able to incorporate other flowers into the scheme to achieve beautiful arrangements with interesting textures! I would highly recommend Last Petal!

I am incredibly impressed by Melanie and her team at Last Petal. Everything was done exactly how we hoped it would be, and of course - beautiful. Plus, Melanie went above and beyond the call of duty to find a way to get it all done. None of the other vendors we interviewed would agree to do everything we asked for. But Melanie and her team were willing to take on the challenge and found creative ways to get it all done within a reasonable cost.

Melanie with The Last Petal was phenomenal!! She took my very small budget and translated my vision into a breathtaking sight on my wedding day. Melanie is patient and kind and listened to all of my ideas and visions. She went above and beyond the call of duty when she and her team helped to set up lounge furniture at my reception site due to the vendor not delivering the furniture on time. She created beautiful, three-dimensional table numbers for the tables that all the guests raved about. Melanie is truly one of the best vendors I worked with on my wedding day. You cannot go wrong hiring Melanie to be your wedding florist!

We tried calling this vendor many times and could not reach anyone to talk to us. My groomsmen had to take photos with no boutonnieres. The flowers made it there, but with no time to be spared.

Using Last Petal for my flowers was probably one of the best decisions I made in my wedding planning. I went with them because I knew they had worked with my venue before so I that saved me a step of getting them into the venue to review the site. All I had to do was tell them the flower I wanted and they brought wonderful ideas to the table to bring those flowers out even more all over the venue. I will definitely be referring my fellow friends of Austin!

Melanie was a breeze of fresh air! After looking at many other florists, I found Melanie's website and fell in love with her work. She has a unique approach to flowers and I loved the fact that she has a degree in horticulture.

Melanie also accomodated my request for a hard to find flower (Crown of Thorns flower) for my bridal bouquet. She called me before my bridal portraits and told me that she couldn't find any for my portrait bouquet, but that she would have them for my wedding day. She had her buyer looking all over the country for my one little flower! It was amazing how much care and concern she put into listening to her clients and achieving their desired vision. Our flowers were gorgeous and her delivery was prompt and attentive.

Melanie was also very responsive to my emails and phone calls. She was super easy to talk to in person and very accomodating in my many changes to our final invoice. I highly recommend her - for her design, the quality of her arrangements and her outstanding service. You won't regret it!

We were pleased with Melanie from the moment we met her. She takes time to understand the bride's vision and executes it beautifully! She is creative, offers suggestions, and is mindful of your budget. The flowers were incredibly fresh and she allowed us to use the arrangements for the entire weekend, and return her vases a few days after the wedding! The flowers looked as good on Sunday as they did on the day of the wedding. In fact, we couldn't bear to throw them away and found every vase we could so that we could enjoy them for several days! I highly recommend Melanie and Last Petal to make the vision you have for your flowers become reality.

Melanie was fantastic! She met me in Houston before I even hired her to discuss our wedding plans. I changed my mind about a million times and she kept up along the way and provided the most beautiful flowers I had ever seen. I didn't cry when I put my dress or my veil on. But as soon as I saw my bouquet, I really felt like a bride and the happy tears came. The flowers arrived right on time and were packaged perfectly so nothing was smushed. We opted for gardenias which are very delicate flowers that brown easily and the Last Petal provided huge ones that were pristine. She was able to work easily within our budget and provided options when we are not sure what we wanted.

Melanie was amazing. When we first met with her, I felt like she really “got” my vision. Then we got her quote, and it was like reading a novel. The way she described things, you could almost smell the flowers already. Then, when we walked into the church and saw the bouquets waiting, everyone gasped. They were amazing. The flowers at the church and the reception were equally beautiful. My only disappointment is that flowers don’t last. They were so beautiful and my mom and I were over the moon pleased . Be warned, sometimes she may not email you back or call you back for a few days, but her work is so fantastic. I think it’s because she puts her whole self into whatever project she is on, so she if doesn’t get back to you immediately, it’s because she is working on someone else’s vision, and she will give her undivided attention to you as well. Truly breathtaking work!
